Router with monitor and promiscuous mode

Hello everyone,

I'm starting with my school project, that includes using router with OpenWRT as "sniffer", probably with tcpdump or Kismet. I have to choose the right device for this task. So if I'm not wrong, I need a router that supports monitor mode and promiscuous mode. I know that some WLAN chips supports this modes and some not.

I found few devices that should support OpenWRT and also supports other features that i need, but I'm not sure if they support these two modes. Is there any list of routers or WLAN chips that's support these modes under OpenWRT?

Considered devices:

Turris Omnia
Linksys WRT3200ACM
Netgear Nighthwak X45 R8700

Thank you for your advices.
BTW.: I'm new to OpenWRT.

Qualcomm Atheros wireless chips generally support monitor mode. For example:

jeff@office:~$ iw phy | head -n25
Wiphy phy2
	max # scan SSIDs: 16
	max scan IEs length: 199 bytes
	max # sched scan SSIDs: 0
	max # match sets: 0
	max # scan plans: 1
	max scan plan interval: -1
	max scan plan iterations: 0
	Retry short limit: 7
	Retry long limit: 4
	Coverage class: 0 (up to 0m)
	Device supports AP-side u-APSD.
	Available Antennas: TX 0x3 RX 0x3
	Configured Antennas: TX 0x3 RX 0x3
	Supported interface modes:
		 * IBSS
		 * managed
		 * AP
		 * AP/VLAN
		 * monitor
		 * mesh point
		 * P2P-client
		 * P2P-GO
		 * P2P-device

I haven't worked with any MTK, Marvell devices, nor any Broadcom devices in recent history. Broadcom wireless has very weak open-source support, in most cases.
